Information about the School

We are very proud of our two schools that make up the Federation. They are charming village schools situated in beautiful rural Essex, both with outstanding views of the countryside and both of which form the heart and soul of their respective villages.

Our Schools provide a caring, supportive environment for children to develop a love of learning and respect and understanding for others.

Each child is treated as an individual, with individual needs and abilities, and everyone is encouraged to try to achieve their best and to have high aspirations.

Our schools enable children to become self-confident and resourceful individuals, with a broad and varied skill set, in readiness for the next step of their schooling journey.

The schools share the same vision, values and ethos, which are nurtured in our small school environment.

Our lovely schools are led by our Head Teacher, Mrs Hannah Wheatcroft, who is supported by her dedicated staff and Governing Body.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
